donek wedding

If you’ve followed my work at all, you know I can’t resist a backyard wedding….when the “backyard” is a gorgeous lake in Northern Minnesota on the border of Canada, it honestly can’t be beat. This day had it all…beautiful setting, a little sun shower during the ceremony for good luck, and the sweetest couple around.


It was less than a year and a half ago that I was capturing this lovely couple’s wedding, and now they’ve added a precious baby girl to the family. These two are some of my favorite people and I’m so happy for them and their perfect little gomper. :)


I feel as though I’ve been buried in weddings since spring, so it’s fun to mix it up a bit and do a senior session. This sweet girl’s mom is a good friend of mine so I’ve known her since she was little; and I’d occasionally pick her up from elementary school, go get her hopped up on chai tea and give her back to her mom. :) She is such a beauty inside and out, making this session so stinkin’ fun to do.
